Given Data Science, it makes sense that Data Science _Education_ should emerge as a discipline and concern. Universities have begun to build robust offerings and degree programs in data science.

But what about data science education at the school level? What does it look like? What is even possible? This panel will discuss research, practice, and development in data science education from middle grades through high school, and how that connects with what’s happening at the university. We'll see what students and teachers can do to prepare for future courses in data science, or for a future as a citizen in a democracy where data science has a lot of influence.

Authors who are presenting talks have a * after their name.
